This blog is the work of Melissa Cameron. She is jewellery artist and lapsed interior architect who moonlights as a photographer (and occasionally writes in the 3rd person…)*
All posts are written by Melissa, with quotes as noted. The texts presented in the Conference Papers and Symposia sections were written for delivery by Melissa at the events as indicated in each introduction, and are collected here for reference. The 1.1.2017 page catalogues a research project that resulted in a new work, completed in 2018. The MDC posts (included here as an archive) were written from content collected from a variety of sources, usually taken straight from the linked page(s).
Most photography is also by Melissa. Some, including those images featured on invitation cards (reprinted with permission), are by others, who retain all copyright, as do the artists whose works are featured in Melissa’s photography. If your work is featured in an image that you don’t want to see here, please get in touch and it will be removed ASAP.
Melissa’s website with CV, biography, statement, upcoming events, stockists (in the Contact section) and many, many more images, visits the more important aspects of her practice. It is getting old, and is slated to be torn down and rebuilt in the second half of 2019. In the mean time check other other links listed on the Website page of this site.
In all her website endeavours she is radically outperformed by the ubiquitous TurboNerd, who codes with unparalleled verve and speed, and who kindly makes the architecture more or less operable by Melissa.
Favorite tool: a tie between AutoCad LT 2013 and her 100mm Vallorbe saw frame combined with 6/0 Glardon Vallorbe blades. Or her camera, or her Optimum drill press…
